How to make:⠀
1. Cook your favorite type of pasta according to package instructions. I used a mix of their chickpea pulse pasta & gluten-free spirals! ⠀
2. In a blender or food processor, add in 2 packed cups fresh basil, 2 large garlic cloves, 1 tbsp lemon juice, 1/4 cup hemp seeds, 1/4 cup pine nuts & 3 tbsp nutritional yeast and blend until a thick paste forms. ⠀
3. With the motor still running, gradually pour in 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil. Finally add a generous pinch of salt (to taste) & some freshly ground black pepper. ⠀
4. Add pesto to the cooked pasta and stir until evenly coated. Serve & Enjoy!
